Build

From Ryzen to Intel.

by johnnypham_

Description

This is my second rig that I built this year, second rig in my lifetime total as well.

First, I had a Ryzen 7 1700 with a Vega 56. I loved that build but for some reason, on Fortnite and Fortnite only, I get really bad FPS drop. So, I did my research and it was a driver issue that started with Fortnite going into Season 5. I waited for about 7 weeks for them to patch it but nothing. I ended up selling my PC and using that money along with adding some more of my own and built this beauty.

I am in love with my PC now and set up now. Along with upgrading my PC, I also added a third monitor to my set up. Which is the 34" ultra wide.

I have my PC clocked at 4.7 GHZ stable with a Cinebench score of 1633. GPU Cinebench score at 172 FPS.

Is there really not a cut-out or pass through hole near the 8 pin cpu?? I can't believe you would need to route the cable across the top like you currently have pictured. Otherwise it looks great!

TBH, I thought it didnt, but i looked again and it does hahaha, I'll be re-routing my cables soon enough.

Pretty Sick Build ! How do you like the Ultra wide monitor you have?

johnnypham_ submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

OMG, I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee the monitor. Its my first gaming&over 60HZ monitor and I must say, idk why i waited so long to upgrade.

With your Ryzen issue …. was it a GPU driver? Couldn't you just gone with the 1070ti in that build?

The build is solid to be sure.

How's that cooler working so far ?

johnnypham_ submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Yes, it was a GPU driver issue. Overall though, I just wanted to switch it up to an Intel and build a new pc cause it's a hobby.

The CPU cooler is working great for the price IMO! im running 4.8 stable with high 60degrees C, under load.

Kind of addicting isn't it?

It is beautiful and enjoy !

johnnypham_ submitter 2 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

lol it is super addicting. I'm thinking about posting this PC up for sell and use that money to build a new one.

That's cool...…….. Some people are afraid to make a leap and build their own. That is a good idea unless you want to wait, listen to them and then build one to their specs. Problem is that too many people will complain and talk about it but do nothing.
